My Two Little History Books

This not-so- little book has been keeping me very busy these days:

Last quarter I decided to become a history major. Yup. Officially. I even earned a scholarship (oh yeah, did I mention that? SUPER EXCITING) in which I talked about my love for the subject. Though I'm only in my 2nd year of college and it's not technically a "major" yet, my decision has been made.
My days have been full of reading and studying, and not just the sort of weak studying I do in other classes just to get a good grade. I'm talking REAL STUDYING. I'm soaking it in, and loving it. I'm even doing supplemental reading to enhance my retention.

Enter, my 2nd not-so-little book:

To be fair, I bought the audio book format from iTunes, and have been listening to it in the car or while doing chores. Still, a book is a book, and at 40+ hours of audio it is a BIG FRIGGIN BOOK, and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more about our country's amazing history, without all the liberal anti-American propaganda that most history classes and books are drenched with. The authors give complete and accurate information, and manage to include all of the ugly stuff without resorting to demonizing the great figures who shaped our nation.

I love America
